Not the easiest place to find but we'll worth it. Good service. Lots of choices. Had the Halibut Piccata and Veal Marsala. Scrumptious. Large servings. You don't need starters to fill you up. Huge desert servings. Bring your appetite.

I, personally didn't care for Volare's. Their menu was quite limited for an Italian restaurant and portion sizes were small for what they charged. Just not my cup of tea,More

Business casual for the most part. It's really such a wide range...some are super casual some dress up. Volare just wants you comfortable, so casual is fine with us! Thank you!!

Award-winning chef/owner Dino Grossi and his family opened Volare Ristorante in the Fall of 2004. Located in the heart of the new downtown Wixom city center, this restaurant features a dramatic interior rich in texture and color. The philosophy is simple: use the best ingredients as simply as possible and serve them with joy and passion. As a Tuscan cooks in Chianti, as a Neapolitan cooks on the Amalfi coast, as a Sicilian cooks in Palermo, at Volare we cook as an Italian might, in the truest sense. We import pasta, Parmigiano Reggiano, balsamic vinegar, sea salt and Prosciutto San Daniele because they are so distinct and virtually indispensable to the creation of a great Italian meal. We fervently believe in the inherent quality, freshness and greatness of our regions' ingredients, purchased from predominantly organic, farmers and friends. Our cheeses come from all over Italy. Our wine list is predominantly Italian, in celebration of the quality and diversity of Italian grape varietals and vinification. Volare Ristorante offers a memorable dining experience of impeccable Italian cuisine, and we have assembled a passionate team that possesses a combination of talent and experience. Volare is our interpretation of the best we have come to know in the Italian culture of family where it is best and most often celebrated, at the dinner table.
